The first edition of this book in 1995 defined IR theory for many students and scholars. This second edition will surely do the same. Booth and Erskine have creatively presented the "argumentative discipline", and their contributors demonstrate the multiple ways in which we can utilize IR theory.

A delightfully fresh, engaging and accessible introduction to IR theory for the new millennium. The contributions by the editors and their first-rate cast of authors will leave readers in no doubt as to the power, necessity and critical virtues of theory!
Robyn Eckersley, University of Melbourne
This collection of essays is a must-read for students and scholars of international relations. The authors contributing to the volume represent both problem-solving and critical perspectives, and their essays respect the past and reveal the future of IR theory - once again reminding us of the importance of pluralism in our scholarship and teaching in a discipline where controversy rules.
